Finally, I received my amateur license for the Philippines with the call sign 4E1ADW. Now trying to get a 2 letter suffix, like DU1KG or 4E1KG.
During this visit I had more time to setup my station in Tagytay and test the antennas. I was very impressed by the performance of the spider beam and even the good propagation on the lower bands.
